    Comments about Yamaha FS800 Folk Acoustic Guitar:

    Purchased at Scottsdale, AZ location with a generous (thanks, GC!) Vet discount. Got home, tuned it up and behold it is everything anyone ever claimed! The scalloped braces make a real difference too, not that the 700 series were anything short of great. The attention to detail is very nice, the intonation perfect and what an awesome sound for the price! I am sooo glad I paid a little more for this new FS800 instead of a good used FS700.

    Unbelievable guitar for the price

    About Me Professional Musician

    Comments about Yamaha FS800 Folk Acoustic Guitar:

    I'm a professional rock musician and have played many guitars throughout my life; but this is the first piece of music equipment that compelled me to write a review. Generally, I play high-end Martins when I play acoustic. I picked up one of these FS800s as a "beater" while on vacation in Florida, not expecting much; but I was astounded. My go-to is a Martin M-36 (0000 body style), and--though quite a bit small, as you'd guess--this Yamaha has many of the same playability and tonal characteristics. ...and with the solid spruce top, this guitar will only get better with age. As a minor side-note, the action was a bit high to start, so I did some minor setup work on it (just turned the truss-rod nut 3/4 of a full turn, clockwise--NOTE: Only do 1/4 turn truss-rod adjustments at a time; then, after each turn, re-tune the strings and check the action. You can easily damage a guitar by playing around with the truss-rod too much. Whether you're a pro or amateur, get one of these guitars now! I'll be picking up a dreadnought version of this guitar soon as well. Snag these guitars before they're off the market.
